“Teaching in London –

the adventure of a lifetime”

says Bronwyn Ward-Manson, Director DJM Personnel 

Here are her words:  

” London…!!

Fabulous, dazzling and diverse. A place like no other & a place with something for everyone. Great to visit – great to party. That’s what I love about it. 

…can be a different ball game working here..

” It was a shock when I first arrived in London many years ago to begin my teaching adventure. It took time, patience and lots of resilience to find my feet and feel like I was ‘home’. 


Before creating DJM, I worked as a Manager for a large corporate Supply Teaching agency in London. 

The experience fired my passion and determination to build a different type of teacher agency. An agency treating teachers and schools with respect; as human beings with unique needs, fears and aspirations.

… and when the opportunity came

DJM Personnel was ‘born’ 

We are privately owned, professionally managed and proudly independent.  

Over seventeen years we have gained an outstanding reputation as one of London’s leading teacher placement organisations. From the start we

  • tailor each placement matching professional requirements with personal choices. 
  • understand the needs of the schools we recruit for and take the time to match those needs with the requirements of our high quality teachers
  • take care of our teacher’s personal and professsional wellbeing.

DJM has teachers from all walks of life, all age groups & varying years of experience. We know each individual teacher has many positive qualities and we build on these knowing what works for one may not work for another.

I know first hand how incredibly important it is to support and value the courage and spirit of teachers. Having experienced teaching in London I know what is needed to succeed.

Welcome to the DJM family.


Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to prove to myself dreams do come true. Bron you gave me the best school I could have ever hoped for. I can’t thank you enough. The meet-ups, cards for encouragement and perseverance, the text messages, the unique sense of family with DJM that you wouldn’t get with other agencies and your Australian personality made my experience in London unforgettable!” Lillie, Adelaide Australia (July 2017)
